Artist Inspiration Summer Salon Series with Wendy Caldwell Maloney

$15 member/$25 not-yet member

You spot a beautiful stone at the beach. You pick it up - just have to hold it... You feel its weight, explore its shape, and marvel at the cool, silky smoothness as you turn it over and over in your hand. You've just fallen in love!  Welcome to the intimate world of stones. Join artist Wendy Caldwell Maloney and discover how watercolor is the perfect medium for capturing the endless variety of shapes, designs, and surface textures in stones, using both wet and dry techniques. Observe which elements are most effective in bringing a stone to life, then try it yourself. Beach stones supplied or bring your own favorites.

Wendy Caldwell Maloney is a Buffalo watercolorist with an extensive background in studio art, typesetting, and graphic design. With a BFA from Alfred University and a decade in the pre-press industry, she opened her own business in 1991, and served the WNY business community as owner of Current Design for twenty-five years. In 2002 a decision to return to the fine arts led her to study with Margaret M. Martin, and within a year she was exhibiting and selling her work in WNY and New England. Wendy's work is currently held in private and corporate collections in the US, Canada, Italy, Morocco, and Mexico. "I am passionate about exploring and celebrating the staggering variety and detail in our natural world, and am inspired and renewed by music, athletics and dance."

No registration required, the Summer Salon Series are drop-in workshops.
